Great service- we were a party of 10 (six who had never been to this restaurant) with an early reservation and needing to be out the door within 100 minutes. Half the party arrived on time, ordered cocktails and appetizers for the table (which arrived before rest of party). As soon as the latecomers arrived - the server took their drink orders- allowed them time to settle in and came back to explain menu and take dinner orders. Halfway into service- additional staff reported for work (as more diners arrived)--and it was perfect. We all had a second (or third ) drink with dinner and managed to be out the door in time to make the curtain call down in Lincoln Park.
Trio of ceviche was fresh and enjoyed by all- as was the eggplant "caviar". The pickiest steak eaters got what they ordered (medium well, not-garnished)- two couples enjoyed the platters for two- and extra sides were a big hit (asparagus, sweet potato and mashed potato- which also had another veg, cauliflower? in the mash, but very tasty.) Server explained (and reexplained) the choices and sauces in a kind and friendly manner.
Excellent restaurant! Food is fantastic. The service is great! A wonderful place to go.
Excellent meal overall. A little disappointed at the ceveche running out, but happy with the alternatives. a little pricey but worth it for the entertainment and the ambience. Great place!
Valentine’s day. Staff seemed overwhelmed. We were told the kitchen was backed up when our food didn’t come out for a good long while. May be a better option on a quiet night. Apps on prefixed menu left much to be desired. Main entree was much more on point. Get the Sangria.
Our dinner was only ok. Our server was the main issue. We sat down around 8.45p and the menu was a 3 course fixed price selection for Valentine's Day. He took our appetizer order and nothing else. The appetizers came and we weren't checked on or asked about main courses, dessert or drinks for another 45 minutes to an hour. Mind you, our server passed by us at least 6 times, never stopped in to check if we needed anything and barely looked our way.
When he did stop, he said 'your food should be out in just a moment.' My reply was 'that would be amazing seeing that you haven't even taken our main dish order or dessert.' Shocked, he quickly took our order and our food didn't show up for about 45 minutes. We got the food and it was honestly sub par. It was luke warm and nothing special.
Probably won't be going back.
Valentine’s Day dinner
Went there for valentines, the Music was nice but at times too loud. service was a bit slow but relatively nice The food was a big disappointment, it was brought almost raw to us and the restaurant seemed to struggle to handle the full house.
Went for Valentine’s Day. It was so loud we couldn’t even talk because the musicians speakers were turned up too high. Our server barely even spoke to us, turns out he was the bartender and also serving the bar which wasn’t even busy. He forgot our order and never put it in so he had to come back and asked us to what we ordered after finally noticing we didn’t have food. Every time they brought food they took it to the wrong table first. Even put it down at the table next to us and they handed it to us. Steak was over cooked. Worst dining experience in a while. Would not go back and would not recommend.
Our water bottle was taken away and never replaced. Had to keep calling for refills. The valentine meal was rushed. They wanted you in and out.
We live in the neighborhood and this place has slowly become our favorite spot in Lincoln square!
